Sailor Moon is my favorite TV series and comic series. That should come as no surprise to anyone at this point in time if you know me in real life.
Sailor Moon Crystal currently airs on Mondays, so I think I’m going to start making the Monday entry all about the series in whatever capacity.
Spoiler Alerts start here.
Today’s episode included a new version of Season 3’s theme song. It was okay, but the theme song itself is somewhat lackluster and has parts that are done pretty strangely.
Today’s episode over all was amazing, but what wasn’t amazing was the ending theme.
The previous ending theme involved the extremely popular Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, and it seemingly held a popularity among the fans across the board.
The new ending theme features Chibi-Usa. It’s adorable in terms of animation, but the song itself is lackluster and not something I appreciate much.
A larger issue of concern for me is why Moonbow was the ending theme the entire time for the first two seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal, but we’ve only heard Uranus and Neptune’s ending theme for 4 episodes. Given, I ADORE Moonbow, but still.
Since there are a total of 13 episodes, it seems like Chibi-Usa’s theme will go for four episodes, and then the next theme will be introduced.
I was prepared for the Chibi-Usa theme because I was watching an Aurora Peachy Reaction video on Youtube, and she mentioned she had heard of three different themes for the Season 3 endings. The next theme is going to be Tuxedo Mask, we think.
Anyway, don’t get me wrong- Sailor Moon Crystal’s presentaiton of Chibi-Usa is adorable because she’s a sweet little child who can be mischievous but is mostly good-hearted and friendly, and she’s nice to see in the show.
In the original Sailor Moon anime series, Chibi-Usa was a brat for something like 80% of the time, and she earned an almost fandom-wide hatred.
Also, today…we got to see Haruka and Michiru transform into Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune!!! The transformation is almost identical to that in the 90s anime, and thank God they didn’t go on forever.
Stay tuned for next week’s entry!
